You’re looking for help, but you just don’t have time for the commute.
With work, school, and family duties, you’re worried that your mental health is being affected, and you’re not sure where to turn
Perhaps, you’re concerned about whether or not online therapy can be just as effective as in-person therapy.
Here at Introspective Counseling in Detroit, MI, we understand that you may have many reservations about beginning online therapy. This may be your first time seeking out mental health support, or perhaps, you’ve never had a therapist who could truly understand your unique needs. Therefore, you may be wondering how an online therapist could be any better? Additionally, being a person of color comes with its own set of challenges. As a community of strong men and women, we are combating racism and systematic oppression within every aspect of our lives. Therefore, getting the support you need takes the right online therapist who can understand your struggles and our black therapists are here to provide that support.
There are many benefits you can gain from online therapy
You may be considering all the ways this could go wrong, but online therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy, especially, when you’re working with the right therapist for you. Some benefits of online mental health support include:
- Finding a black therapist in your area is not easy, but with the help of online therapy, you can begin working with a skilled clinician in your area.
- If your insurance offers limited providers, online services make therapists who specialize more accessible.

Services Offered at Introspective Counseling through Online Therapy Services
Online Anxiety Therapy and Perfectionism Treatment
As women, we are high achieving, nurturing, and hopeful. However, many women deal with perfectionism and anxiety on a day-to-day basis. We are taught that we need to be without flaws and be successful to be valued. We may spend more time thinking about how others perceive us, that we often forget how to love and accept ourselves as we are. If you’re struggling to develop self-love and give yourself grace day to day, then therapy for anxiety and perfectionism may help you find balance.
Therapy for Moms Online
Being a mom isn’t as pretty as TV makes it seem. There are stressful and ugly parts that people often keep out. We can’t always be strong and put together. Everyone needs breaks, rest, and support. We are allowed to have moments of weakness and it not be a definition of who we are as a person. If you’re struggling with isolation, shame, or finding strength during this time, then reach out to our therapists. Motherhood isn’t the only identity you hold and taking care of you as a person matters too. Begin therapy for moms online.
Online PTSD Treatment and Trauma Therapy
Taking about the tough moments is often overlooked. We forget that when we have dealt with trauma, childhood trauma, or have survived abuse and neglect, that it takes a toll on our well-being. You may be feeling stuck. It’s like you’re trying to move forward and instead, you take ten steps back. Furthermore, you may be dealing with anxiety, depression, or recovering from the grief of a massive loss. Our therapists understand that healing from trauma is not a linear process, but our trauma therapists are here to guide you forward. Begin PTSD treatment and trauma therapy today!

No tells you how stressful life changes are as you navigate career changes, school, relationships, and young adulthood.

If you’re seeking some help, then therapy for high achievers and therapy for young adults may help you find balance.
Online Therapy for Working Professionals
Here is the thing, as a black individual, we work twice as hard to get half as far. It is exhausting.

Meanwhile, you may be dealing with more distress at home because your family doesn’t help out and it feels like no one is in your corner on both ends. You need support and space to breathe. Online therapy for working professionals may be helpful for you.
Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy Online

When you’re ready, begin therapy for life transitions.
Grief Counseling Online

Whether you’re experiencing grief the death of a loved one, losing a good or toxic relationship, or you’re dealing with new life transitions due to a person in your life being incarcerated, we can help.
